I am forest ecosystem ecologist interested in how species composition affects ecosystem processes. Ecosystem processes contribute to the beneficial services that ecosystems provide for us. Understanding how different species in a forest contribute to these processes is important because our forests are always changing. As a result of natural events, (succession, disturbance etc.) and relatively novel factors (climate change, exotic species) some tree species are expanding while others are disappearing.
